At wits end with my Priest

6 posts in this topic

Playing my shadow priest has always been an enjoyable experience for me, but recently I have gotten some new pieces of gear and my dps has never been the same. I know the rotation and how to play her, I've read the guides and forums, and just can't seem to be able to find a way to fix one of my favorite classes. 


My Item level is 550 but my dps has been sub par. I remember having no trouble hitting over 200k dps, but now I'm having a hard time even hitting 180k. New stat weights, maybe? Please.. help me fix my priest! Any insight would be much appreciated. 


here is my armory link :

It is not my rotation I am worried about. What I'm asking is how I can fix my gear and stat weights.

Under the assumption that it's just gear (I am entirely unqualified to discuss, let alone examine, any priest rotation), I assume you got shiny new gear with a lot more hit/spirit on it, since you're substantially over hit cap.  (I main an elemental shaman, I'm quite familiar with this issue.)  My guess is that you equipped gear with a higher ilvl, but not so high as to make up for the almost 2k in lost secondaries to being over hit cap.  It's probably not just one piece, either.


If you haven't gotten rid of your old gear yet, I'd suggest getting the free trial of the full version of Ask Mr Robot, which lets you do "best in bags".  Nothing looks wrong enough about your reforge/gem setup to cause that big of a difference, there's just have too much hit on the gear you're wearing.

Upgrading your gear and losing more than 10% of your dps?  No, you're doing something very different, because you're still at haste cap.  5% over hit cap means you lost at most 5% of your dps. 


Your rotation is what I'M worried about.

your hit is a little under but that fine. your stat are are off  your haste is at 35% your mast is at 38% but your crit is only at 20% your masty and crit should be about the same. that will be be a big part of your dps loss. hope this helps.

      Im long time lurker on class guides, and Id like to suggest and ask if you could add numerical stat weights in class spec guides. Pawn addon config string would be perfect but just numerical values would be also great. What do you think about it?
      Thank you in advance

      Hey so I have starting Mythic progression and I just feel like I should be doing more DPS at my item level but I don't know if it is my Rotation or Stat priority.
      I'm looking at the logs and I feel like I should be doing more DPS in my current gear with is 874 with 22% Crit 29% Haste 46% Mastery

      I have been raiding with ye olde guildies, but alas my dps has been at the bottom of the pile which I expect with my ilvl as they are all much higher but i do feel like i should be doing more than what I am.
      please take a look at the logs ( ) and help me figure out where i am going wrong.
      Thanks in advance!

      Hi, I just have a question about mastery as Outlaw. 
      Why is it so good for me? is my armory. I have an 830 versatility trinket that Mr. Robot says is better, so I'll probably swap one trinket for that and an 835 Rough-Hammered Silver Ring that would be approximately a 100 dps increase replacing my Grubby Silver Ring. Why is this? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I don't really simcraft, I used shadowcraft in the past but it seems a bit unreliable at the moment.

      I use AMR to quickly get an idea of different gear upgrades pretty often. With the changes to mastery they have yet to really set up a new default stat weight and I didn't really like the stat weight they had before anyway. I know the priority of Vers>Haste>Mastery>Crit. This is more about the technical weights for AMR.
      Does anyone have any thoughts on what stat weighting they use for AMR or what the new weights should be?
      Thank you.
